The Beta65x HD is a tiny whoop with a special lightweight camera. It is the smallest production HD cinewhoop in production. Weighing in at only 30 grams this miniature quad is capable of capturing 1080p footage at 60 fps.
The Beta 65x HD looks like a classic tinywhoop. It shares the same frame as the popular Meteor65. The motors are 0802, 14,000KV brushless motors and they push tri-blade 31 mm Gemfan props. The flight controller is an AIO F4 and the VTX is a compact 25 mw version.
It uses two 300 mah lipos to acheive 2S power. The included lipos use the new BT2.0 connector. It is more efficient than the standard PH2.0 connector, but you’ll have to either convert your tiny whoop batteries or purchase some new ones. I converted a pair and it wasn’t hard but now my Mobula 6 is down two batteries…
What is the Beta65x HD?
If you are considering the Beta65x HD then you have to understand what it is. It is a tiny cinewhoop, not a tiny whoop. I understand that might sound confusing, so I’ll explain. The Beta65x HD doesn’t fly like a Mobula 6 or a Meteor65. It flies more like a tiny Veyron. It isn’t quick and nimble like the most tiny whoops. It seems to float and need more direct inputs and corrections. If you want to capture good HD footage you’ll need to practice with this little guy.
The field of view of the camera is narrower than the typical FPV camera. I personally prefer a wider field of view, so I was a bit disappointed. This is typically a compromise of a split camera like this one. While the HD footage may not be GoPro quality it is impressive for a tiny quadcopter like this one. It records onboard and you’ll have to provide your own SD card.
Should you buy the Beta65x HD?
If you are looking for a quick and nimble tiny whoop to record HD footage this is the closest option. While I lack the skills to really push it, with some practice it could become that quad. Personally I think this is best suited for slow cinewhoop style flights and capturing footage flying through tiny gaps. One thing is certain. There isn’t a smaller HD FPV quad out there.
